Amazon Did it Again!

Amazon shoppers this is for you. If you now go to the toys section, there is no longer an option to filter via gender. The “boy” and “girl” filters are now gone in a move to remove that stereotype regarding toys. If you search for “boy toys” or “girl toys” then you will be taken to those specific pages but the filter option is no longer available.

This move towards gender neutral appeals to the liberals but conservative folks may not like it and people in general may find it harder to shop. The change is to make boys and girls feel comfortable playing with any toy and not feel judged. So what if a little girl wants dinosaurs and a boy wants a play kitchen. This small step will not solve all of gender equality but it is progress.

This follows Amazon’s most recent creation, the STEM Toys & Games
